drank SBT: Watermelon by 52teas
51 tasting notes

I cold steeped one of these in a gallon of water for about 24 hours and added just a touch of maple syrup. The result is still dark and rich despite the 2 qt water recommendation, and the watermelon flavor doesn’t taste fake at all! The black base has a certain pungency which I think balances out the sweet fruitiness, and there’s a floral/rosey finish as well. This might be my fave SBT thus far. (But then I kinda think that every time I try another one…) :)

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

I absolutely love this stuff. It’s like every tea lover’s crack. Not that I’ve ever tried crack before, but…you know.

The only way this could be better is if I had gotten a higher grade matcha (I got the lowest). There is a little bit of an earthy/pungent aftertaste, but other than that it is EXPLODING WITH CARAMEL.

Plus, I’ve always had a guilty love for frappes and this is the perfect alternative. I bought this on a whim because it was on sale and I will definitely be buying more Red Leaf matchas in the future. Probably not the Matchaccino next time just because I want to experiment with my own sweeteners. :)

I usually blend this with unsweetened vanilla coconut milk and a few ice cubes. If I’m feeling a little crazy I add things like kale, a peeled aloe leaf, hemp powder, and/or a chunk of frozen banana!

Leftover sample snagged from momo yet again. :)
Smooth and creamy blueberry with a floral, woodsy rooibos finish. What’s not to love?

It tastes just like watermelon! Not in a jolly rancher sort of way, but a REAL watermelon sort of way!! Might have to snag some more with my next order. I oversteeped it a little so it’s a bit tannic (is that a word?) and lukewarm, but I don’t mind at all. I was in the process of steeping it at work and got caught up with an ER patient.

This was the last of four samples that came with my first Butiki order. Now to dive into my actual order. ;)

Meh. Rose hip is definitely the main note here. Not that those are terrible or anything…it’s just a bit sour for me. I’m tasting a little of the green tea and orange peel as well, but not much. I’ll finish the pouch but won’t be chasing anyone down for more when it’s gone.

This tastes very similar to SBT’s monkey fart with a hint of cream….I don’t know why I got both. I guess I’m just a banana fanatic. Say that ten times fast.

It’s got that banana runts flavor, but that’s a good thing in my eyes (mouth?).

Sample. I was worried this would be bitter as grapefruit flavored things often are. But nope, not in the slightest. I like how Stacy adds just enough flavor to detect but not so much that it drowns out the tea itself’s flavor. Very light and delicate.

Sample. I’m sorry I didn’t write this note earlier or I would have been able to add more detail. The three flavors were perfectly balanced…present yet not overpowering. Yummo indeed.
